Cybersecurity Risk Management Framework Strategy for Defense Platform Systems

Cybersecurity Risk Management Training

The Cybersecurity Risk Management Framework Strategy for Defense Platform Systems course prepares command leadership to implement the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) cybersecurity Risk Management Framework (RMF) from a Platform Information Technology (PIT) perspective.

This one-day workshop reviews the five functions of cybersecurity (identify, protect, detect, respond, recover) that leadership must consider when making decisions about program resources and requirements. Leaders will learn how to apply the risk management framework – from identifying cyber threats and how they impact operation, to assigning control strategies and analyzing the cost and benefits of secure designs.

Technical innovations offer capability and efficiency advantages but also introduce risks to data confidentiality and integrity, and system availability. To help leaders define and mitigate cyber risks, attendees in this class will review case studies of successful cybersecurity programs. This is followed by practicing a process for creating a strategic action plan to implement the risk management framework in their environment.
